Ghastly, tastes like washing up liquid smells, a confusing and muddle of over peppered ginger wishing to be something itís not. Itís not a beer that you should drink is what itís not.
Lucky itís a season beer and not part of their production line.

Brillant on a lazy summers afternoon. Easy drinking, begins with a hit of ginger, and a spicy finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is a hazy transparent light yellow-orange colour. It appears thin, well carbonated and had a white head that shot through in short order. Thereís a lovely aroma of ginger that wafts strongly from the glass. Crystallised ginger is by far and away the dominant aroma with honey and lemon taking very much a back seat. Those same aromas dominate the flavour at first, but then the honey and lemon come through strongly in the flavour. Then it softens and becomes zesty and refreshing, clean and rewarding. I can imagine this beer with a Thai green curry. I rather like this.
